Finals Week: How I Survived

December 18, 2010

Ok, I’ve been done with Finals for about 48 hours now. Since then, my brain is bursting with things to do while I’m home for the holidays. Everything from blogging, to cooking, to revamping my coffee table (highly doubt that one will happen, but it’s a thought). I have so many ideas, I’m actually overwhelming myself believe it or not.

While I’m gathering my thoughts into something organized, I thought I’d take some time to share with you how I got though the week.

1: This Verse: John 15:9-17.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.  If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.  I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.  This is my command: Love each other.”

I keep reading and re-reading this verse and can’t get enough of it. I’m challenged by how much Jesus loved us that He died for us, then also that he calls us friends. The King of the Universe calls those who believe in Him, friends. crazy.

2:My Tervis Tumbler: It holds both hot and cold liquids and makes for great company in the library or Barnes and Noble:)

3. Express Leggings: I  stayed warm over finals week in my favorite Express leggings.

4. Lilly Agenda: It’s not just a looker folks, it also is perfectly proportioned to plan out my work and fun!

5. Taking Breaks: Ok, so I studied my butt off, BUT I also took breaks to do things I love and spend time with some of my favorite people. It took away the feeling of going crazy from studying for long periods of time on end, and I so enjoyed my last few days on campus before parting ways with my great friends over the break.

An evening out for Sierra’s birthday at the Cottage (a must visit)

Making Gingerbread Boys and Girls with Stacy and Robbie.

Breakfast from Paris Cafe at the Green Market

I said this last post, but I’m so happy to be home and back on the blog. It was a lovely break, but I’m glad to be back in the blogging world :) (What a fun hobby I’ve stumbled upon!)

Happy Weekend!
